Title: The Pulse (Greenlight Boys Book 1)
Billions dead worldwide. A new threat looms. Can a pair of grieving sons and their former Black-Ops father stop a terrorist group?
Alex and Danny have been training with their former Black-Ops father, Dean since the “Pulse” was set loose on the world five years ago. A terrorist group wants to destroy the remaining governments and military with a new virus. The US Army calls on their father and Alex and Danny to stop the terrorists before the remaining world order is destroyed. Can they stop the terrorists from destroying the last bit of order in the world? What if there is a secret bigger than the “Pulse” itself that could change everything they know and thought?
The Pulse is the first book in the Young Adult fiction dystopia series, the Greenlight Boys, that features compelling characters, a pair of kick-ass brothers and surprising plot twists. If you liked The Mazerunner, Divergent, or The Hunger Games series, then you’ll love Daniel MacLagan’s brand new dystopian adventure.

–Abigail’s Targeted Tip:
In setting up stakes, don’t restrict yourself to what happens in your book. What’s the worst possible outcome that could have happened in your book?
